Iraq's interim government has taken the legal custody of Saddam and 11 top members of his ousted regime from the US-led military.

Iraqi Justice Minister said "If the evidence proves the serious crimes that he (Saddam) is accused of, then the special court set up during the occupation could sentence him to death."

"For crimes against humanity, genocide, use of chemical weapons, we can use capital punishment," he stressed.

On the other hand saddam has refused to sign legal papers recognising the process.

"I am the president of Iraq and I am an Iraqi," George W. "Bush is a villain, all of this is theatre. It is for his re-election,"Saddam said.
